Market Share Versus Profits

OLED-US‘s change in revenue this quarter compared to the same quarter last year of -9.41% is almost the same as its change in earnings, and is about average among the announced results thus far in its peer group, suggesting that OLED-US is holding onto its market share. Also, for comparison purposes, revenues changed by 86.06% and earnings by -995.81% compared to the immediate last quarter.

Earnings Growth Analysis

The company’s year-on-year decline in earnings was influenced by a weakening in gross margins from 74.74% to 25.19%, as well as issues with cost controls. As a result, operating margins (EBITDA margins) went from 49.94% to -1.71% in this time frame. For comparison, gross margins were 61.20% and EBITDA margins were 16.73% in the previous period.

Gross Margin Trend

Companies sometimes sacrifice improvements in revenues and margins in order to extend friendlier terms to customers and vendors. Capital Cube probes for such activity by comparing the changes in gross margins with any changes in working capital. If the gross margins improved without a worsening of working capital, it is possible that the company’s performance is a result of truly delivering in the marketplace and not simply an accounting prop-up using the balance sheet.

OLED-US‘s decline in gross margins has not produced any significant offsetting improvement in its working capital . This leads Capital Cube to conclude that the decline in gross margins are likely from operating issues and not trade-offs with the balance sheet. Working capital days are currently 574.13 days, compared to last year’s level of 465.21 days.

Cash Versus Earnings – Sustainable Performance?

OLED-US‘s change in operating cash flow of -12.78% compared to the same period last year is about the same as its change in earnings this period. Additionally, this change in operating cash flow is about average among its peer group. This suggests that the company did not use accruals or reserves to manage earnings this period, and that, all else being equal, the earnings number is sustainable.


The company’s decline in earnings has been influenced by the following factors: (1) Decline in operating margins (EBIT margins) from 44.97% to -7.71% and (2) one-time items that contributed to a decrease in pretax margins from 45.24% to -7.41%
